K.I.D. was a 1980s Italo disco musician best known for his SAM import and club hit "You Don't Like My Music (Hupendi Muziki Wangu?!)" that entered the Billboard Club charts. The name is a pseudonym used by Geoffrey Bastow.
Bastow, who is also known as Geoff Bastow (born 1949 in Yorkshire, England, died 2007 in Munich), was a Munich-based English songwriter and music producer.
In the early 1970s, Bastow recorded albums such as Music To Varnish Owls By (1975), Flavour Of The Month (1977) and The Video Age (1980) for various British labels. Originally working as a guitarist and pianist in dance bands around Yorkshire, he moved to London in the early 1970s, and then Munich in around 1976. He collaborated with disco/electronic innovator Giorgio Moroder around that era. He also toured with Engelbert Humperdinck's band as a guitarist.
Aside from his main work as K.I.D., he has also worked as a session musician for Euro disco acts such as Amanda Lear (1981 album Incognito), Boney M (1981 album Boonoonoonoos), Mick Jackson and Gary Lux.
He wrote songs for artists including Elton John (song "Born Bad" from Victim of Love) and Suzi Lane ("Harmony"). Bastow co-composed with Mick Jackson an Austrian entry for Eurovision in the early 1980s.
Bastow, as an electronic act called K.I.D. managed to get into the Billboard Dance Club charts in 1981. It entered the chart around September 1981, reaching No. 54 in September 26, respectively. Around November 14, it jumped to position No. 10. His brother Trevor (1945-2000) was also a noted London composer and session pianist. His younger brother Phil Bastow is also a musician.
